A while back, I wrote about Facebook Diamonds it's about worlds colliding:
Imagine 4 people sitting around a table. Everyone knows the person to their left and right, but no one knows the person across from them.
Well, a blogger recently looked me up on Facebook after reading that story. Not really that difficult, since my name, picture, and city are sitting RIGHT OVER THERE on the sidebar. But what really tipped them off, and what rocked their world was the phrase written next to my picture. "You have 1 mutual friend."
Disney's "It's a Small World After All" must have been ringing in their brain. Our link wasn't another blogger. It was a guy I know from college. Someone they know from home. Creeped their shit out a little. It was like I "pre-stalked" them.
6° of Scope-aration my ass.
Too old for Facebook:
Saturday I was out in the burbs getting my oil changed and hanging with old friends ("the Blond" and her husband). She's been to the blog a few times. And we talked about my planned trip to Seattle. Then we started talking about Facebook. She mentioned that her husband's 72 year old aunt had asked them to join Facebook. Then she looked at my mobile FB account, and knew only about 40 of the contacts (including 2 of her 3 college roommates). There was more than one, “oh!” moment as different names and faces passed by.
I now give her 2 weeks to join.
